Exactly!

This does NOT mean that I think all eBooks should be priced at 0.99 or less - I understand that authors and publishers need to make money, or they'll stop creating the books I want to read.

But, just like when I only bought print books, what I "normally" paid for most of the books I already own does influence what I'm willing to pay now.

Like you, I have many favorites (or even just "liked-a-lot's") that I can re-read. I'm just not willing, for most books of any "binding", to pay more than about 5-6 dollars for a fiction book. And if I can get what I want for less than that, then yahoo!, I got it on sale!
